    I had never heard of the MSX until today (and I've been around a while).

    Background: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSX

    tldr
    It was basically the Japanese equivalent of the Commodore 64 and was mainly popular there instead of the UK and US. Microsoft, of all companies, was the developer of it. The Metal Gear series had it's debut on the system (wow).

    I love the MSX.
    I was lucky enough in the late 80s to buy a used MSX 2+ from a friend of mine who knew how to import stuff well before the internet was around....
    For a little while the MSX ( first model ) became quite popular even in Europe and saw mostly ports from the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC.
    But it clearly had superior hardware, and Japanese games released exclusive for the platform ( Metal Gear, Nemesis and so on ) were the proof of that.
    Plus it was a standard for a home computer that pretty much like a PC was produced by several electronic giants ( Sony, Philips, Panasonic ...).
    So it was hardly unnoticed. But for some reason it all went downhill in the early 90s and the agreement for this so called standard between companies fell trough.
    Anyway, not only I like those games, but there is even a lot of nostalgia involved for me ( I actually learned the little bit of coding I know on the MSX ), so I really like this emu, plus with the introduction of the DSi version, the little speed problems are almost gone !

    Create a folder called MSXDS in the root directory of your cart and place all the BIOS ROMs there.

    The right BIOS for msxDS..

    for MSX 1 mode:
    MSX.ROM = National CF-2000 or FS-4000 ROM (CRC32: EE229390 or 071135E0)

    for MSX 2 mode:
    MSX2.ROM = National FS-4700 or FS-5000 ROM (CRC32: 9B3E7B97 or A44EA707)
    MSX2EXT.ROM = National FS-4700 or FS-5000 ROM (CRC32: 4A48779C or 43E7A7FC)

    for MSX 2+ mode:
    MSX2P.ROM = Panasonic FS-A1WX ROM (CRC32: 19771608)
    MSX2PEXT.ROM = Panasonic FS-A1WX ROM (CRC32: B8BA44D3)
    KANJI.ROM = Panasonic FS-A1WX ROM (CRC32: 1F6406FB)
    A1WXKDR.ROM = Panasonic FS-A1WX Kanji Basic ROM (CRC32: B4FC574D)

    for PSG+FM sound mode:
    FMPAC.ROM = Panasonic FM-PAC BIOS ROM (CRC32: 0E84505D)

    for Floppy Disk Drive emulation:
    DISK.ROM = Panasonic FS-FD1a Floppy Disk Drive extension controller ROM (CRC32: 697EAF4E)

    I hope this clues will help you.

    Thank you very much, supercarte! I finally found all the proper files and it's because your help. But I've to point out something about that great list:

    1. The file DISK.ROM was very difficult to find, and the one with that CRC was from FS-FD1 (not FS-FD1a).
    2. The file A1WXKDR.ROM I found with the correct CRC was from FS-A1WSX (not FS-A1WX).

    1. You are right. The good Disk ROM come from FS-FD1 extension. We can found the same ROM with a other crc32 (4C9B8214). The FFh at the end are replaced by 00h only.

    2. The appropriate crc32 of A1WXKDR.ROM is A068CBA9. It is a Copy/Paste mistake. You can use too the Kanji ROM from FS-A1WSX.

    I think its better to rename all Bios files as BlueMSX to make easy. I'll ask Popolon.
